• This is what your motorcycle can 
look like! 



Step 2 








• As a safety precaution, disconnect 
the battery of the motorcycle 
(located under the seat). 

• Note: Don't burn out the 
battery with the LED Lights. 
If the wires and the strip doesn't 
light during connection, turn the 
LED connectors over. Afterwards, 
connect them to the battery. Don't 
force the input and output 
connectors; they will work once 
they are properly connected 
together.

• Lay out the LED Strip on the side of 
the motorcycle or hold out the LED 
strip for design ideas. Note: Before 
installing the LED lights, plan out 
the design in order to determine the 
length of the wire needed. 



Step 4 




Before mounting the LED wire, 
wipe the area down with alcohol 
wipes in order to remove any dirt or 
residue. The mounting process 
begins under the hood of the wheel. 
Start off by peeling the protective 
vinyl off the LED strip. Continue 
this as you go along the hood of the 
tire as shown in the picture. 

Note: Make sure that the 
areas where the LED strips 
are going to be placed are clean. 
Cleaning the area allows the LED 
strip to stick properly.

• Run the LED strip and extension 
cables along the frame until you 
reach the battery. 



Step 6 




Once the connections are done, 
use a zip tie to secure the excess 
wires and place them inside of the 
bike pouch. Note: Make sure all 
connections and zip ties are 
secured and clean.

• Connect the wires to the control 
box and then place it under the 
seat. Make sure it is secure and 
hide it away from exposure to 
protect it from possible water 
damage. Now connect the control 
box to the battery by connecting 
the outputs and inputs to the 
corresponding colors (black to 
black, red to red).
